Dr Randy C. of Arcadia CA USA Tutor Profile

Tutor Personal Information

Name: Dr Randy C.
Gender: Male   Age: 31-40
Tutoring Style and/or Experience

Education Background:
UC San Diego, Bioengineering Ph.D
UC Berkeley, Mechanical Engineering, B.S.
UC Berkeley, Economics, B.S.

During my Ph.D education, I had more than 4 years of teaching experiences as a TA (teaching assistant to university professors). In these courses, I taught students basic course concepts (biology, chemistry, physics, engineering, etc) and helped them to design and assemble mechanical and electrical parts for conducting scientific research.

In the past two years, I have constantly been doing 1-on-1 tutoring both online and in person. I have taught high-school and college students from USC, UCLA, Clairemont college, and Cal state Pomona. I really enjoy teaching and seeing students learn basic concepts and pick up hands-on skills. I teach students in ways not only to help them do well in their course-work but more importantly also to teach them how to apply what they learn and to think outside-the-box.

Having been through different phases in my academic career, I understand making academic decisions (picking colleges, course selections, etc) can be very confusing and often frustrating. I can be there for the students as a mentor/counselor, guiding them through the process.
